Shockers hope to continue perfect run

Mon., March 17, 2014, midnight

Undefeated Wichita State’s magical run will continue as the top seed in the Midwest Region.

On Friday in St. Louis, the Shockers (34-0) will face the winner of Wednesday’s first-round game in Dayton, Ohio, between Cal Poly (13-19) and Texas Southern (19-14).

The Shockers matched the NCAA record for victories to start the season by UNLV in 1990-91 after going 18-0 in the Missouri Valley Conference in the regular season. They won their first conference tournament since 1987 with a win over Indiana State in the championship game.

No. 2 seed Michigan will face 15th-seeded Wofford on Thursday in Milwaukee. The Wolverines (25-8) won the Big Ten’s regular-season title but fell to Michigan State in the finals of the conference tournament. Wofford (20-12) tied for third in the Southern Conference but beat Western Carolina to win the league tournament.
